Education resource for schools - Marvellous Microbes

The Society for General Microbiology has issued an educational resource for schools called “Marvellous Microbes - A visit to the dentist (Issue 3)”.

In this issue of Marvellous Microbes a boy, curious to know why he needs to brush and floss his teeth twice a day, takes a trip to the dentist who introduces him to the plaque acid producing bacteria that live on our teeth. The comic includes an experiment to try at home looking at the function of fluoride toothpaste in our daily brushing routine.

The resource can be downloaded from the society’s webpage here: SGM
